12 earthly branches relationships in the fishing

There are twelve hours in a day and night, one hour is two hours, 24 hours a day, arranged in the order of earthly branches(The twelve Earthly Branches or Terrestrial Branches are a Chinese ordering system used throughout East Asia in various contexts, including its ancient dating system, astrological traditions, zodiac, and ordinals): Zi, Chou, Yin, Mao, Chen, Si, Wu, Wei, Shen, You, Xu, Hai, Zi Shi is The first place, Haishi is the twelfth place.

You can fish in twelve hours, but there are day and night points. Fishing during the day can be divided into morning and evening fishing, and fishing in the evening can be divided into the first half of the night and the second half of the night.

The seasons are different, and the time of day and night is different. In summer, the daytime is long, the daylight is early, the morning and evening (a period of time before and after sunrise) will appear before 9 o’clock, and the late evening (a period of time before and after sunset) will go late, and it will end in the midnight of the hour. It is from 5 to 7 in the morning, and from 7 to 9 in the evening, is the hour. In winter, the daylight is short, the dawn is late, the dark is early, the morning and evening will start at Shishi, and the evening will end at Shenshi. From 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. is the current hour, and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. is the time for application. As for fishing at night, summer is the main one, and the first half of the night and the second half of the night are based on the midnight hour, which is easy to distinguish.

Although fishing is possible at twelve hours, there is a difference between fishing during the day and fishing at night. Fishing during the day can be divided into good fishing and bad fishing. In evening fishing, there is a difference between a fish’s willingness to bite and an unwillingness to bite it. It may be impossible to catch anything, and when the time is right, there may be fish that cannot be caught. Mastering the timing of fishing is the secret of fishing , and the angler must know it, and must not ignore it.



(1) Childhood

Midnight is also called midnight between 11 o’clock in the evening and 1 o’clock in the morning.

In summer, it is time for big fish to eat, especially big carp, big catfish, big grass carp, big crucian carp, etc., during the day they will lurch in the deep water to avoid the heat. In the quiet and deep midnight, they will come to the shore to look for food in the shallow waters, knowing their fishing methods, they can succeed. There are two fishing grounds for midnight fishing: one is fishing in flowing water, and the other is fishing in still water.

The fishing water is mainly rod fishing (or sea rod fishing), the tail of the big boat, the sides of the barge, the bridge, the raft, and the homemade raft. You can all fish, usually oligo bait fishing. That is, the color, shape, and smell of the bait are used to lure the fish to bite the hook, and the main fishing carp and catfish.

Fishing in still waters is mainly sea pole fishing and hand pole fishing. For sea pole fishing, you should catch shallow water, and on the beach surface, you can catch bomb hooks, string hooks, and square hooks. The main fishing is carp, grass carp, and crucian carp. For hand-rod fishing, you must catch deep and distant waters, big nests, night cursors, and carp.
Fishing in the sub-season is linked to fishing in the Hai-shi, especially nest fishing. You should try to make a nest during the Xu-hai period and introduce the fish into the nest area as soon as possible to ensure that there are fish in the night fishing. Fishing midnight temperature not lower than 2 5 ℃, the higher the temperature during the day, the midnight good fishing.


(2) Chou Shi

It is Chou Shi from 1 am to 3 am.

Compared with sub-time, the biting frequency of fishing in Chou Shi has dropped quite quickly, and the phenomenon of continuous fishing in Chou-shi may disappear in Chou Shi. This kind of contrast is extremely fast switching, which often makes people feel at a loss but not understands why the scene of fishing that was so popular will quickly become cold and smoke, and there is no movement as if these fish were driven away by something of.

In fact, it is time that really makes the fish leave the market. It is the fish’s biological clock that plays a role. At night, the fish’s activity is not only affected by the temperature but also controlled and dominated by a certain force of a mysterious nature.


In addition, the temperature in the ugly time drops relatively quickly, and it is also a time when the wind is easy to rise. Fish are very sensitive to these changes. It seems that when the time comes, they will rush back to their nests in a hurry. So fishing in ugly times, although you can catch a few fish by chance, the situation of continuous fishing is rare, and it is the same when there is moonlight and when there is no moonlight.

It is worth mentioning that when Chou Shi was fishing in rivers, he might encounter particularly large catfish, and it was not easy to drag them up with a fishing line. Often the line was broken and the rod was broken, with no result. Ugly time is the time when big fish really haunt.

(3) Yin Shi

Yin time is from 3 am to 5 am.

And as Chou Shi, Yin Shi head is not good for fishing, mainly affecting the temperature and the night wind. Yin shi is the night before dawn. When the humidity of the day is the lowest, once the wind blows, no fish will bite. However, fishing in the rivers is a good time to harvest fish.

In summer, boulder fishing and clip fishing are all fishing at the time of the day, and the fish is collected at the same time. The fish cannot be seen in the light, and the fish must be collected before dawn. If you collect fish in water with no light or weak light (such as moonlight), the fish will not be able to figure out the direction of escape, so they have to follow the fishing line obediently, and there will be no trouble getting on the fish, even if you catch a few kilograms The big fish is so obedient. If you harvest the fish under bright light, it won’t go so smoothly.

In order to catch fish well in Mao shi and Chen shi, it is a common practice to fish in Yinshi, especially in some shallow waters. It is necessary to fish early and dusk, and the nest is advanced to Yinshi. The night can be used to prevent fish from being surprised. , It can attract more fish to the nest.

(4) Mao Shi

5:00 to 7:00 in the morning is Mao Hour.

In summer, the sky is bright in Mao shi, and it dawns early. Whether it is a fishing rod, a sea fishing rod, or a fishing rod, you can fish in Mao shi.

In the rivers and rivers, most of the fishing rods are used for fishing in Mao shi, and for fishing in the hour, you have to feed a nest of fish. An hour is not too much.

In fact, fishing in the morning does not only refer to fishing time but refers to when fishing is possible in the morning. Mao shi is when fishing is possible in summer, and early and dusk in summer is mainly in Mao shi. In winter, morning and evening come late, and after Chen shi, Mao shi is not included.

No matter what the weather is, it is sunny, cloudy, windy, rainy. You can fish in shallow water or clear water when fishing in Mao. The light in Mao shi is dim, blurry, and scattered, and there is no shadow when projected on the object. Fishing in shallow water and clear water, rod shadows, human shadows, hooks, and standard shadows will not surprise the fish, and it is better to fish.
There is a saying: “Three mornings, one job”, the fishing rate in Mao shi is quite high. Sometimes the fish caught in the early morning is more than the usual day. Fishing emphasizes that it is fishing in the morning. It comes from the highest rate of fishing, and it is a good choice for fishing in summer.

(5) Chen Shi

The hour is from 7 am to 9 am.

The hour is the best time to fish in a day, a season, or even a year.

Fishing in the morning mainly talks about Chen Shi, although Mao Shi can fish, Mao Shi is only limited to summer. The span of Chen shi will be much longer, that is, in winter, as long as the temperature is right, Chen shi can still fish.

Especially in spring, when it is golden fishing time, whether you are fishing for crucian carp with your hand, or fishing for swimming with a shabu-shabu, or fishing for big fish with a throwing rod, you may return with a full load.

It is worth mentioning that there are two fishing methods for crucian carp fishing in the springtime: one is nest fishing and the other is oligo-bait fishing.

In spring, crucian carp, in order to breed, will appear in groups in the shallow waters of the shallows. This kind of fish, if they build nests, especially if they throw a piece of bait with their hands, is very easy to startle the fish. They will abandon it after being frightened and refuse to come back. This kind of bred fish must be fished with oligo bait, that is, the color, smell, and shape of the bait are used to lure the fish to bite the hook. You can catch them one by one until there is no fish to catch before you can build a nest. But in summer, fishing is often close to the end of morning and evening. As long as the sun shines on the nest, the rod should be removed and the fishing should be changed to deep water and big fish.

(6) At present

9 am to 11 am is the hour.

It’s a good time to catch big fish. Whether it’s hand fishing, sea fishing, or shabu fishing, it’s prime time.

There is a saying that if you don’t catch any fish after 11, you may get nothing on this day. Of course, things are not absolutely the case. To say so is enough to explain the importance of fishing in the past.

In fact, the foraging period of the big fish is not limited to the hour. Because of their size, they need to eat more than we thought. For example, grass carp, in the weather above 30 ℃, the daily food intake of grass carp is equivalent to 40% of body weight. If the food source is insufficient, they will not be able to fill their stomachs in a short time. Therefore, they will extend the eating period to Si Shi.

Whether it is spring, summer, autumn, or winter, it is good to fish.
The early evening in winter is in the midst of the hour. When fishing in the summer monsoon, it is also necessary to catch fish, especially big fish, which is the best. As for fishing with rods and nests, especially grass carp, it is a time of high fish rate, as long as the fishing technique is used. Without making mistakes, catching big grass carps continuously is not a problem.
It is worth pointing out that if you want to make a nest catch a big fish in Sishi, you must make a nest before or before the hour, and you should make a big nest, a hard bait nest, and fill the nest halfway.

(7) Noon

11 noon to 1 pm is noon.

Since ancient times, there has been a saying that “It’s hard for gods to catch midday fish.” This kind of saying is based on a certain rule.
In fact, fish that have already filled their stomachs at Chenshi and Sishi need a slow digestion process, which is distributed at noon. In the morning, the sunlight is the strongest and the temperature is the highest. Animals need to stop exercising to rest, and fish are no exception.
Therefore, fishing at noon in this situation is not so easy, especially fishing for a certain kind of fish.
However, things are not absolute. You can fish at noon, such as carp fishing. For carp fishing at noon, you need to catch the northwest corner of the pond. Carps are deep-water fish and need to be basked in the sun. They will come to the northwest corner of the pond at noon. This is related to our geographic location and the habits of carps.

Another example is to fish for carp in the muddy water at noon, and also at noon when there is the sun. This is related to the visibility of the muddy water. As for fishing on a windy day with a rod, a string hook, and a rainy day at around 20°C, you can catch fish at noon. It is a common practice and a good choice to stop the pole at noon when the screaming is known, or at noon under the scorching sun.

(8) Untimely

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm is not the time.

The end of summer is a continuation of noon, and it is also difficult to fish.
On a dormant day, the scorching sun is like fire, and the really hot hour is not noon, but not. Fishing from time to time requires courage. Although it is a bit difficult to catch fish under the scorching sun, it is still possible as long as you are familiar with the habits of fish and have a little bit of luck.
In particular, fishing for bighead carp and silver carp in the upper-middle layer is a good time period. The temperature of bighead carp and silver carp is very obvious, and it is most suitable for their activities in the future.

On the three winter days, when the winter sun is shining, it is the golden time for crucian carp fishing in winter. As for the early spring and late autumn, as long as the weather is not low, fishing is good.
Fishing for carp in Wei shi, you can also fish in muddy water, fishing under the northwest corner of the pond, the noon fishing method can continue to Wei shi. As for fishing grass carp in the untimely, you should fish under the semi-water in the deep water area. In very hot weather, the grass carp is neither in the deep bottom nor in the upper layer, but in the middle and lower part of the deep water.

(9) Application time

Application time is from 3 pm to 5 pm.

Fishing in the afternoon is a very important time to apply.
Fishing in spring, Shenshi is the golden stage of fishing, and the late evening in spring appears in Shenshi. In winter fishing, the time of application is the end of the evening. At this time, the fish are most willing to bite. For fishing in the summer, Shenshi is the time to reopen the nest. On the dog days, after the sun’s baking at noon, the sun has begun to shift to the west at Shenshi. The intense hot light has begun to weaken, and the rested fish will start to move again. . In summer, fishing pays attention to fishing in the evening and evening, that is, fishing in the evening, and reopening the nest at the time can lure the fish early. The time of application is also the time to fish for bomb bait in summer, which is easy to succeed.

It is worth pointing out that when fishing on a sunny day, Shenshi cannot sit on the west side of the pond, mainly rod shadows, bait shadows, and human shadows will be projected into the water to start fish. Although this problem is also encountered in the morning, the impact of the current time is relatively short, and the application time will continue until after you time, which is too long. Of course, fishing on cloudy days and fishing in muddy water on sunny days do not have this problem.

(10) Unitary time

Unitary hour is from 5 pm to 7 pm.

Unitary hour is the late evening in spring and autumn, which is basically good for fishing.
Fishing for big fish in summer is a good time for you. At this time, big fishes will start to hunt for food nervously in order to welcome the arrival of the night. Big fishes have a big belly. It is not easy to fill up their stomachs. All kinds of food I will never let go of. When you catch a big fish, it is easy to get the bait.

However, fishing for crucian carp on the Three Winter Days had already returned home at the time of You shi.
At the turn of spring and summer, it is better to fish in unitary time, especially for upper fish with a fishing rod. Due to the suitable temperature and in the evening in unitary time, the biting frequency of swimming fish will be higher than other times. Something.

It should be understood that fishing is not very good in the late evening of early spring and late autumn, especially in the late evening when the temperature is low, they will stop eating, and hide in the deep water as soon as possible, so that you can’t catch anything.

(11) Xu Shi


From 7 to 9 in the evening, it is Xu time.

In summer, the sun sets late, and it is in the evening when the sunsets. After the sun sets, the sky will have sunset clouds. At this time, the light is dim and fuzzy. The information of the sun setting is somewhat stimulating for some fish. Yes, they will eat desperately during this time. This phenomenon is more prominent in summer to prevent hunger from being unable to find food in the dark. This is why it is easy to catch all kinds of fish in the summer.
Late evening appears at Xu Shi, but in the days before and after the dog days, after the autumnal equinox, the evening will be advanced to the unitary hour, and it may not be possible to catch fish. At the winter solstice, the evening will arrive at Shen shi, which is before 5 pm. This change in time is related to the return of the climate and directly affects fishing.

Fishing in the rivers is the best time to cast mound fishing and clip fishing. Fishing in the middle of the evening, the fish can still see the bait, the bait is sucked by the fish, the sky is getting dark, and the fish is not dared to move after the fish is hooked.

reservoir fishing
(12) Hai shi

From 9 am to 11 am in the middle of the night, it is Hai Shi.

In summer, night fishing in the rivers is usually done in Hai time. The body of water that has been exposed to the scorching sun all day will slowly cool down in the evening breeze. At this time, some fish will return to the nest first in the night, slowly digest the food in the nest, and leave the nest until the next morning. Some fish will take advantage of the blurry light at night to go out for food in Hai shi. Among them, catfish and carp are the most typical ones. These two types of bottom fish will hide deep in the valley and abyss during the day, avoid the scorching sun, and refuse to come out. They are easy to catch in the sea.

In the ponds and reservoirs, fishing rods, string hooks, and fishing squares are also prone to high tides of fish during the Hai shi, especially in the water body with carps, it is easy to catch them during the Hai shi. Carp is a deep-water fish. In summer, they will also come to the shallow water for food. Fishing for carp at night is easier than fishing for other fish, especially in clear water.
